So, why exactly should you amend your federal tax return?

1. INCOME: Late arrival/corrected W-2s and 1099s or unreported income are important reasons to file an amended return. You want what you filed to match the IRS's records.

2. FILING STATUS: Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, Head of Household -- Depending on your circumstances, a different filing status may help your tax situation and be a good reason to file an amended return.

3. MISSED DEDUCTIONS: Incorrectly claim certain expenses? Forget to claim them? Accidentally include or leave out a dependent? The same goes for missed tax credits (and there are a lot of them right now).

4. CHANGES IN TAX LAW: The ever-busy IRS sometimes clarifies a rule or a court ruling down the road – possibly creating a tax break for you. Check with us on this one anytime.

And the relationship needs to be MANAGED, and at scale … otherwise, you’re merely a glorified freelancer.

And just like accounting transactions and payroll taxes can be automated, so can various aspects of customer interaction.

So, it might be time to implement a good CRM (customer relationship management) software.

We've got some thoughts, and we're happy to share them.

After an influx of cash (like a big tax refund), the smart cookie starts thinking about reducing their debts such as high-interest credit cards.

Think about it: You pay a lot for this credit and the balances on your high-interest accounts build up fast making the stuff you buy more expensive.
